Emerson

When my friend was placing an order she qualified for a hostess set, but said she wasn't crazy about any of them so asked me if I wanted to get one of them. I am of the mindset that I can't have too many floral stamps {she's in denial about this}, so I asked for this one. Since then, I have had the hardest time making a card with it. So my goal last night was to finally use it. Now that it's all together the one thing that I really wish was different, is for the sentiment to be darker. And I'm not totally crazy about the color of the butterfly. Other than those 2 things, I'm pretty happy with it. But since I did as much coloring and cutting as I did, I had to post the card. And I got to use my new best friend kraft :)

Stamps: SU God's Beauty
Ink: PTI Berry Sorbet, Hibiscus Burst, Plum Pudding, Ripe Avocado, Smokey Shadow, Copics, Chalk
CS: PTI Ripe Avocado, SU Kraft
Accessories: Glitter Glue

This is GORGEOUS!!! I love how you have your flowers going off the edge of your main panel in the corner. And such great colors you used. I think the sentiment color is perfect. How lucky are you to score such a great set?

I know I already commented, but I was so intrigued by your card that I'm looking at that set on ebay right now! And it got me to looking at your card again. Did you stamp the flowers on colored paper or did you stamp them on white and color them in? If you colored them in, what did you use? Your "ingredients list" doesn't mention this.

Very pretty card - you did a great job with it. And I am with you on never having too many floral stamps - I'm almost afraid to really see how many I actually have!
